Preliminary planning amounts for the 2012-2013 school year are available as of June 6, 2012, for public school districts, the Texas Juvenile Justice Department, and Windham School District. These preliminary planning amounts are based on "preliminary" data provided by the U.S. Department of Education (USDE).
Eligibility and planning amounts for special LEAs, including open-enrollment charter schools, South Texas ISD, Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, and Texas School for the Deaf, must be determined on the submission of the 2012–2013 SC5010-NCLB Data Request Form for Federal Funding and "final" USDE allocation data. Therefore, preliminary planning amounts for these entities are not available. It is anticipated that planning amounts for special LEAs, along with revised planning amounts for public school districts, will become available in late June upon receipt of USDE "final" formula allocation data.
Local educational agencies (LEAs) may select from two consolidated reports to locate their preliminary planning amounts. One report is sorted alphabetically by LEA name and the other is sorted by education service center region number and alphabetically by LEA. The reports are as of June 6, 2012, and are subject to change.
